Not a fun MTB experience. Just like the main description states and most of the other comments. It is just an annoying rocky trail. Would not recommend.

This trail should be rated a green. It is generally flat and does not have any features like other flow trails in the area. This trail is meant for dirt bikes that generate speed via motor. On a non motorized bike this trail runs slow. This flat and featureless trail would be great for a beginner learning how to ride single track, but if you are an intermediate-advanced rider you will hate this trail.

I agree with the main description.
AZT is more fun to ride.
We started Rocky Moto near the Snowbowl road, went up then rode it from west to east. That was a mistake.
If you're determined to ride this trail on a bicycle, I suggest ride east to west, it will be mostly downhill.
